@devaluingmyfame Ha, HI. Also yeah I guess if someone was like, "Would you pay $135 to never worry about this again?" I might do it.
@MeghanNesmith omg freezer fish. I am glad I am not alone but also sorry that I am not alone. Yes so far the only solution has been to eat all of the ice cream at once. But we'll see what happens...
@foofyq You're totally right. He tends to not say no in person, or has a much harder time of it. I think often sending out an email is my attempt to feel like I've done something without actually tackling the problem. Also your story gives me hope!
@BornSecular Ha, no need to disclaim! There are so many pros and cons, I think you should revel in your freedom from third-party meddling.
@wrappedupinbooks Oh, ha. You pronounce her last name Au as 'Ow' --> Dr. Ow --> an amazing name for a medical doctor.
@moreadventurous For index fund vs. high-yield savings, I have had the same debate. I ended up putting 2/3rds of my savings in an index fund, and saved the 1/3rd in Ally or whatever. The Ally account makes hardly any money but it's safe, and I know I won't lose any of it (except to inflation/missed opportunity I guess). So I keep the money I will need soon-ish and am not willing to take risks on in there, and then put the rest in the index fund, which in two months has made a good chunk of money. You could always put, say 5% of it in an index fund and learn how it works, see how it feels for you. And then just check up on it month to month, adding more if you're comfortable with it, or withdrawing it if you aren't. In my experience, I saw how much more the index fund made and am now kicking myself for not doing it sooner. But it's still a risk and totally depends on the particulars of your situation. How flexible is the two-year timeline, how screwed you'd be if you lost some of the money, etc.
@laluchita Omg I <3 her.
@Josh Michtom@facebook Never split the baby! Or the 12 tribes of Israel? Unclear.
@garli Oooh. NEXT YEAR!
Never split the couch!
